Muslims in Malaysia will begin the Ramadan dawn-to-dusk fast today Friday (April 24), says the Keeper of the Rulers’ Seal Tan Sri Syed Danial Syed Ahmad.

He said the date for the beginning of the fast nationwide followed a decree by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong after receiving the consent of the Rulers.

The announcement was aired over Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) on Thursday night.
